Race comments, confidence and ratings across the entire card at Cranbourne.

Cranbourne Markets R1 – 8

R1 | 16096:49pm

A tough race with a few first starters. Nostra Beach must be respected from the strong Emma Stewart barn. Topsies Delight looks the leader – went well in the chair last time and should give them something to chase. Cullens Legend did a power of work last time when a terrific placing – has a horror draw here though.

Kinvara Sue has won 4/7 including four in a row before losing a race on protest at Menangle. Looks way too good for these. For place players, look to Handy That and/or Riegle Deception.

Small field where anything could win without surprise. Captain Bronzie may come up too short here – is coming off second row draws and the stable is in form. You can roll the dice with Baccarat one more time here – always around the money in these types of races. Lucky VC has come back well this prep with a win and a good third in a tough race.

Modern Ville goes better with Chris Alford on and although she hasn’t won for a while she is consistent and gets a good draw. Mulgrave was heavily supported from gate seven last time – where there’s smoke there’s fire and draws better here. Gozo Lighting was back to it’s best last week but that was a weaker race. Jivin Jerry is going well but the driver change isn’t a positive one. Final Over gets a good trailling draw – tough race so look for the value.

Glacier Heights gets the visitors draw here but is by far the best horse here. Can do it tough but with Alford on board, I don’t think it will pose too much of a problem. Blissful Mind was good in fast time last start but the draws against him. Clancy Pants looks the best of the front rowers – but is up in class.

R6 | 2080| 9:18pm

Another smallish field with a few chances here. Ferdinand is only won one from six, and has been slightly disappointing at stages but has run in good races. May lead here as he did from gate seven, two starts ago. Mygoldengrinner has shown pace at stages and may have an early dip for the lead. Starofsahara is a nice horse who has had no luck lately.

Platinum Power could be too good here from the plum draw. Rosehilll Rose Hill led all the way in an easier race last time. Magical Delight would win on old form – but is it going as well? Down a mile in grade here.
